Abstract: A recent laser bonding technique has been developed to prepare silicon-on-diamond material. This method allows the independent choice of the quality of the silicon and diamond plates to be processed. This opens a wide field of applications for silicon-on-diamond devices. We present and discuss the laser technique and the experimental results achieved. Two new projects involving relevant issues both in high energy physics and in biological applications are also presented.
